I always liked Jim Edmonds and was pretty excited when he became a Padre. As I’m sure you know, that didn’t last very long. It wasn’t just that he sucked, but it looked like he was putting forth no effort whatsoever not to suck. Man, it was ugly. He was a shell of his former self, appearing confused and overwhelmed. Teammate and noted lumbering bag of donuts Paul McAnulty looked like a young Edmonds in comparison. What made it all the more infuriating was that he immediately turned it back around upon signing with the Cubs after costing the Friars seven million dollars and David Freese in exchange for one month of suck.
